About Scleroderma; Scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic condition of the body’s connective tissue experienced by approximately 6,000 Australians today. Generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic conditions, it can cause thickening and hardening of bodily tissues, and often causes serious, life-threatening damage to the lungs, heart, kidneys, oesophagus, and gastrointestinal tract. Women are three to four times more likely to develop the condition than men. Although the condition can present at any age, the onset is more common between the ages of 25 and 55.
